Clear golden yellow color with white head that fizzes away completely. Aroma has wild yeast funk, a hint of honey sweetness and wood. Taste starts with a honey hint but not really sweet, some fruity/floral yeast notes, wood tannins a slightly bitter finish. Medium body with crisp carbonation and dry feel. Overall it's a quite nice wild ale but nothing really special.

Served on tap at the publick house in Brookline MA
Sered in a mystic pt glass

A: served with a fluffy white 2 finger head that dissapates nicley.... Body is a hazy light yellow straw color. Looks very refreshing and very light, not much lacing.

S: musty funk with notes of Brett, nose almost remiss me of a berlinerweiss, a light perfume floral smell as well. Which I'm guessing has something to do with the name. Lemon citrus notes are also present... As the beer warms a touch it seems that the must and earthyness are coming from the light oak notes present.

T: lemony delicious, with a slight tartness, funky barrel notes blend in beatifuly, this is a very well balanced brew with everything complimenting everything else very nicley. A bit of floralness on there as well. Again i am slughtly reminded of berlinerweiss. Very tasty!

M: light bodies an very drinkable! A great beer for an almost 100 degree day here in Boston. Medium/high carbonation maintains a fuzzy/creamy mouthfeel.

O: I really enjoyed this beer, it's a great release from mystic and it deffinatly excites me for future sour beer releases of theirs in the future... Really glad I had the opportunity to try this.
